Chris Brown is a free man!
The 25-year-old singer was released from a Los Angeles County jail at 12:01 a.m. Monday, says L.A. Sheriff's deputy Tony Moore, E! News can confirm.
Brown has been in custody since mid-March for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna. On May 9, L.A. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced Brown to one year in jail; he received credit for 234 days of time already served in jail and court-ordered rehab, which left him with 131 days to serve. A number of factors were considered, though, and officials gave the R&B star early release.
